"cute, but woefully inadequate for viewing online photos"1.5 starson by dhkeller
Pros: wireless set-up and computer connectivity was remarkably simple (non-Mac, of course).
Cons: Flickr and RSS Feed access is sketchy and inconsistent.
*VERY HARD* to navigate Flickr and Photo RSS options
Didn't auto-update the slideshow feeds without restarting the feed (fairly complex process)
Summary: We bought this frame for our parents, so they could see digital pictures of our extended (and geographically diverse) family. The frame is too complex and requires user-input to update pictures, which is not easy for non-technical people, especially older adults.
Although it does access Photo RSS feeds, we also found it does so with varying picture quality. The same picture viewed via a Flickr account (ie, "Favorites," which we would have to set-up on their account) versus viewing on an RSS Feed had very different image quality. Of course, neither a Flickr slideshow nor an RSS slideshow is very easy to set-up on the frame.
After moving the frame and plugging it in, it never returned to the setting it had been on most recently, and instead used a mish-mash of images captured from Flickr feeds ... again rendering it useless as a way of sharing pictures with whose who are technologically reticent.
We never tried displaying pictures with a chip or via direct PC transfer ... You wouldn't need Wi-Fi for that. It seems to me that the whole point of a wi-fi frame is to have easy, consistent access to online images. That is not the case with this frame.
*NOT* a good buy for folks who are not very tech-savvy.
